09.32 am – I don’t know why but I usually sleep very little when on holidays so I woke up when everyone else was sleeping and found my way to the cafeteria.
A breakfast menu! Great!
My first Filipino breakfast experience. Garlic fried rice with eggs and tocino.
A cuppa joe
by the pool.
Thank you Carol for your nail clippers.
Otherwise I’d be having a hard time with my fingernails.
10.54 am – Everyone was still sleeping.
So I spent some time myself and
managed to finish up a chapter before
fatty came in and played with my tv.
12.35 pm – Checked out of DM Residente and continued our journey to Makati City.
Reached Dau express bus station of Angeles City.
Boarded the highly recommended Victory Liner.
12.52 pm – We were on our way.
Another Victory Liner bus ahead of us.
The cost of the bus ride from Dau to Cubao in Makati City is only PHP 123 / MYR 9. If we had taken a private van, it would’ve cost us PHP 5000!
01.40 pm – Somewhere along our 1.5 hour journey,
it rained pretty heavily.
02.15 pm – We knew we were in the city when we saw the massive amount of traffic along the roads.
02.26 pm – Stood around Victory Liner’s Cubao station waiting for Andy to finish shitting.
02.31 pm – 5 minutes later, we were on our way.
The pavement of the city reminded me of Bangkok yet again.
The sight of people lying by the roadside and sitting in a lazy chair under a staircase is so Bangkok.
Spotted the highly recommended
Manong Pepe’s along the way to Cubao MRT.
Went in and lined up.
The pictures of the food on the wall
I didn’t get the opportunity to try it all. =(
My meal of the day.
03.15 pm – Continued our journey to the Cubao MRT which was situated about 10 minutes walk
away from Victory Liner’s bus station.
The view from the top.
Was shocked to see so many people lining up to buy tickets as the ticket dispensing machines were down.
Inside the super crowded MRT.
03.47 pm – Reached Makati City’s MRT stop and took a jeepney from there to our hotel in P. Burgos Street.
03.59 pm – Ladies and gentlemen, Isabelle Royale Hotel.
The view from my room.
John’s bed was on the ground floor while I took the top.
He had the tv all to himself.
